Homeopathy good for disk herniation and disk bulging?

No: Homeopathy is based on the hypothesis that a substance that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people will cure that disease in sick people. It will do absolutely nothing for a disk herniation.

Yes, can help: Conventional treatment of disk bulging and herniation is often non-surgical and conservative, unless there are clear signs of worsening neurological function. Homeopathic treatment with an experienced practitioner may yield helpful results -- sometimes avoiding need for surgery. There are nearly 300 homeopathic remedies known for sciatica.

Not Alot: Traumeel is a homeopathic medicine used for inflammation and injuries used in the sports medicine world alot. Look up a naturopathic doctor or a physician that does a lot of homeopathic treatments. Alternatively there are non-steroidal epidural injections or even stem cell based injections.
